Prior to Saturday’s special election to replace the dead Texas legislator After signing with Covid-19, Former President George W. Bush Said The dominance of Donald Trump’s supporters suggests that Republicans “want to be extinct.”
A special election took place in District 6, where Republican representative Ron Wright died in February. Twenty-three candidates will compete. All but one of the 11 Republicans are tied to the apron string of Trump, the former president who still controls the party.
“The Washington, DC community is ruining America,” said one candidate, former wrestler Dan Rodimmer, who promised to “make America Texas again.”
Trump has approved another-Susan Wright, the widow of a former member of the House of Representatives said Saturday, “strong in borders, crime, prolife, our brave army and veterinarians, your second Always protect your modifications. “
Former Republican Marine Michael Wood, who has not announced his death to Trump, told CNN that he was “fearing the future of the country,” given Trump’s lie that the election was stolen. Said. The Capitol on January 6th supports the lie and the spread of conspiracy theories like QAnon.
“I felt I had to get up,” Wood said. “Someone had to stand up and say that this wasn’t what the Republicans should be.”
Nevertheless, it is. In a CNN poll released Friday, 70% of Republicans said Biden did not legally get enough votes to be nominated as president. Biden won more than 7 million votes over Trump and won the Electoral College 306-232. This is the same score that Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Bush promotes a new book, a collection of portraits and stories of immigrants.To interview Released on Friday by Dispatch, an anti-Trump conservative podcast, he was asked about recent moves by pro-Trump militants to form a parliamentary cocus promoting the “Anglo-Saxon tradition.”
“For me, it basically says we want to go extinct,” he said.
If this trend continues, President Bush said in three to five years, “the party will not be held.” I mean I read about it, and I tell myself, “Wow, these people need to read my book.” It’s like saying that when I was running for Governor of Texas, you’re a Republican and you’ll never get a Latino vote. And I said you are watching. And I worked hard.
“And the important thing was to let them know that I could hear them. That is, democracy is great in that sense, and say you can be a Republican. The idea is that if “if”, the ultimate extension of it would end up being a party. “
President Bush was asked if he agreed with “more than 50%” of Republicans who believed the election was stolen. “”No, I think I’m one of the other 50%.
“By the way, I’m still a Republican and I’m proud to be a Republican. I believe the Biden administration is a particularly financial cohesive factor, so the Republican reigns for the second time. So you know, we’ll see. But I know this. If the Republicans represent monopoly, it used to be a country club, but now So obviously he’s a white Anglo-Saxon Protestant, so he won’t win anything. “
Wood, an anti-Trump Texas Republican, said he voted for Trump in 2020. But he also said, “I thought the party would eventually reach where I am. I hope it happens without losing, losing, or losing. The party has a series of events. After a defeat, you may only get the message that you need to try something else. I think you should do it now, not after losing in the midterm or presidential elections. “
Texas District 6 has tended to go to the Democratic Party in recent elections, but it remains unlikely to turn around.
Earlier this week, Trump told Fox Business that he was “thinking about 100% running” in 2024.
Former wrestler Rodimmer, one of Texas’s top fundraiser in the field, told CNN: “President Trump is still a Republican leader. I don’t think he’s going anywhere. I hope he doesn’t. If he runs again, I’m excited, I’m excited. “
